Some government agency has _created_ a deadly sexually transmitted disease
and introduced it into the populace??? On PURPOSE??
Are we _trying_ to wipe out the world's population?
'Marker tests have shown stability through at least 12 degrees of
So, your P1 subject can pass it on to 12 or so subjects before the strain
becomes ineffective (Ie: A to B, B to C, C to D down to L)? That wouldn't
be too bad....
But your statement of 'implying suitability for large scale scientific or
military applications' leads me to think, however, that it was designed so
that the B subject will be able to pass it on another 12 degrees, the C
another 12, and so on.
We call that exponential growth! Even given the virulence of only 18 hours,
this still has the large probability of wiping out a HUGE percentage of the
sexually active population! And it's already been set loose?
And what about mutations? As that guy in Jurassic Park stated, 'Life finds
a way'......it could possibly become _more_ virulent past the 12 degrees.
It looks like you engineered it to kill off Malone (and judging by the post,
it worked)....but it sounds like this is one of those 'world effecting plot
devices' that I was warned to avoid.
Engineering 2061's version of AIDS seems like overkill to nab one guy....
Or hey...maybe i've misread the implications....but that's what it looked
like upon first and second read.
Jus' wonderin'....insert smiley's alla round....
Figure'd I should know so's I can go out and buy some lead-coated condoms
when the news gets out..........
